• Steam runtime suddenly not starting any more


    Hey guys,

    I’m experiencing a really weird problem on steam: Although I didn’t do any updates recently, my steam client isn’t working any more. This happened from one day to the other. I tried a lot of things already: reinstalling steam, installing older nvidia drivers, checking out the arch wiki page about steam runtime issues and so on. So far nothing led to success.

    So here’s the problem:

    When I start steam via console or quicklaunch icon (no matter if it’s steam-runtime or steam-native), steam keeps hanging at installing breakpad exception handler. At first I didn’t get any further information on the problem, then I ran the following command:

    LD_DEBUG=libs $HOME/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam
    

    then I got the following result:

    Any idea how to fix this? I also might add that I have nvidia, nvidia-utils and lib32-nvidia-utils installed and both multilib and multilib-testing allowed in pacman.conf

    My GPU is a GTX 1060.

  • Okay somehow I just magically solved this issue. I uninstalled all nvidia drivers and installed the nvidia-lts driver. However, du to this, my system wouldn’t show up any more on reboot, so I pushed ctrl+alt+F2 and uninstalled the package again manually and reinstalled all the common nvidia packages (nvidia, nvidia-utils and lib32-nvidia-utils). After that, I got my system to show up properly after reboot and then I reinstalled steam and steam-native and suddenly it worked xD. I actually don’t know why because I tried reinstalling drivers and rebooting at least four or five times earlier 🙂

  • I also had this problem but reinstalling the nvidia packages didn’t work for me. On further investigation I noticed that the both the kernel and nvidia packages had been recently updated, so I rolled these back to the previous versions and Steam is now working fine again 🙂 This will keep me gaming until whatever is broken in the kernel/nvidia/steam packages is fixed.

    Here’s what I did …

    cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg && sudo pacman -U ./linux-4.11.9-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz virtualbox-host-modules-arch-5.1.22-6-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz virtualbox-5.1.22-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz nvidia-381.22-4-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz lib32-nvidia-utils-381.22-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz nvidia-utils-381.22-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

    Edit: note that because of the kernel downgrade I also had to rollback Virtualbox.
